Ideas for dip/salad using almond butter?

It does. I am an omnivore but still use it in preference to dairy sometimes.

Ideas for dip/salad using almond butter?

I make a very similar frosting with coconut oil for vegan guests.
It is delicious. For a real treat sub cashew butter.

Passover desserts question

I made Claudia Roden's orange almond cake this year. Instead of baking powder I separated two of the eggs and beat the whites.
It is a fabulous cake which was a huge hit. Best made three days ahead. Stays moist a week.
Widely found on the web.

Then you need to poach thm separately. But they won't taste as good.

Did you spoon sauce over them as they cooked? That is what I do and I have no problem such as you describe.

Guests tonight: What to serve with Pan Roasted Cod w/ Walnuts & Lemon

Sautéed greens is a nice choice. Or roasted asparagus.
I don't do both greens and a salad, instead I would do a lettuce and pea soup starter.

Large vs. XL Eggs in recipe...

Biscotti is not fussy, so I would not worry about it.

Shakshuka / Eggs in Purgatory / Eggs Ranchero & other eggy wonders

I do too.
I made some recently and added horseradish which I made for Passover and which has a very short time of optimal heat.
It worked well

Good salad to precede clam linguine

Lots of people don't like fennel

Timing for lentil quinoa salad

Most grain salads are fine the next day. I underdress them ahem add more dressing if needed at serving time.

Corn Casserole?

There is always a cornbread element in my experience but some recipes are more creamy, which I prefer.

Which one of these ricotta cheesecakes looks better

The second is more like what I make, which is excellent.

Non-dairy quiche, can I use almond milk?

Frittatae are best room temp IMO. I like a little potato, pasta or grain in mine, unless it is for low carvers.

Custard , bread & butter or Lennon pudding cake

Me too.
I use this recipe but add a little more lemon and a little less sugar.

Help with reheating rice - no microwave

I steam it over water. Works great.

Your "evil food" (super unhealthy) recipe?? :)

It wasn't upsetting. Just a pet peeve about calling food evil.
Food is just food.
If anything fits the category for me it is processed food like Cheetos, but if I liked them I would still eat them moderately.

Recipe needed vegan stuffed cabbage

I would cook the quinoa ( or rice if you are Sephardic) and add nuts and mushrooms.

Nope, if I love it I eat it, if only rarely.
I find the notion of evil food distasteful.
